GlobalDF co-creates “Unlocking Actions to Mobilize Institutional Investment in Africa Infrastructure”
Given the urgent need to mobilize institutional investment in Africa’s infrastructure, GlobalDF collaborated with Africainvestor to identify critical unlocking actions that can be implemented immediately by institutional investors and host governments. GlobalDF Executive Director Dr. Samuels co-authored with Africainvestor CEO Hubert Danso the report “Sovereign Wealth and Pension Funds Investing in Africa’s Infrastructure: Unlocking Actions to Mobilize Institutional Investment,” defining challenges and actions aimed at unlocking significant institutional investment for infrastructure projects in developing countries, with special emphasis on Africa’s regional and national infrastructure.
Immediate actions can be implemented by institutional investor stakeholders and host governments on their own to incrementally increase investments without new coordinated large-scale public sector interventions. The immediate actions are aimed at leveraging the above current investment modalities to enable immediate increased institutional investment in infrastructure with a focus on Africa. The actions are differentiated by the key actors: institutional investors and host governments with support from development partners. The key report recommendations are based on multiple inputs: expert studies, surveys of institutional investors, and input from public and private sector participants involved in the development and finance of infrastructure assets.
